Growing Up in the Age of Porn

with Janis Whitlock

Thursday, March 19, 2020

6:00 - 8:00 pm 

Hotel Ithaca

222 S. Cayuga Street, Ithaca

 

Light refreshments will be provided.

The digital age has ushered in many new and novel outlets for youth interested in accessing sexual information, adult entertainment, and social/sexual networking. However, the digital terrain is so new and quick to change that teens have largely been left on their own to navigate the sexualized elements of the digital world and parents are left unsure how to have conversations on this topic.

Janis comes from the Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research at Cornell University and this event will foster discussion about the nature and challenges of this new age as well as productive strategies and resources for parents and youth workers.

Free training but seats are limited.   Please register by March 12 by emailing talbert@tompkins-co.org or calling 274-5310.
